Panel clears 133 applications for manual sand extraction 16.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The district-level Committee set up to look into sand extraction in CRZ area has cleared 133 applications for manual sand extraction. District in-charge minister Pramod Madhwaraj told media persons that it has been decided to give priority to local people while finalising applications. The sand so mined should be used only within the district and it cannot be transported to neighbouring districts or states. The number of applications is likely to go up.

Unholy nexus built dodgy constructions: Prakash Mehta 28.7.2017 DNA: Mumbai
State Housing minister Prakash Mehta says that unauthorised constructions grow due to the blessings of civic officials. He hopes that the new act that the state is planning to introduce will have stringent provisions to break the unholy nexus. In an exclusive interview, Mehta says the government's priority is now the rehabilitation of Sai Siddhi residents and it's reconstruction. How serious is the government about addressing the menace of illegal buildings? The Sai Siddhi crash is certainly an eye-opener. With three decades of experience in the politics, I can tell you that unauthorised constructions cannot mushroom without an unholy nexus between developers and civic officials. The government proposes to bring in new act which will be deterrent to an officer even at a lower level – (s)he won't dare help construction of illegal buildings or turn a blind eye to them. Did such a nexus lead to Sai Siddhi's collapse? I have represented Ghatkopar (West) assembly constituency, where Sai Siddhi is located, for ...
